Probably the most anticipated release from Tatuaje for many people is the Fausto line.   In a year at IPCPR  where Ecuadorian/Connecticut shade tobacco is making for a lot of cigars outside the full strength and full body range, this cigar was one many people were looking forward to.

I apologize in advance for not having a quality picture to post, but I do have some good information to share on this cigar.   One thing where the Fausto gets its strength is from leveraging higher primings from the tobacco.

Here is a high level breakdown of this cigar line:

Blend Profile

Wrapper: Ecuador Habano Maduro
Binder: Nicaragua
Filler: Nicaraguan including Jalapa/Esteli Ligero

Vitolas Available

There are four core vitolas available.  There also is a fifth vitola dubbed “Fausto Avion”.  The plan is for the Avion to produce a different vitola year to year.  The 2011 Fausto Avion is a perfecto.
